The lineup for Cincinnati Soundbox’s next season is up now.
Modular Art Pods
I’m in Tennessee now for two performances by Colleen Phelps of Water Music over at OZ Arts Nashville. The photos are from tonight’s concert in a Modular Art Pod.
I touched the ground while floating away (2015) was written for and performed by Xia YuYan (pipa), Ng Jia Wei (yangqin), and Jason Pockrus (saxophone). The premiere took place on May 27, 2016 in Beijing.
YuYan sings the following text by Kendall A. at the end:
What lies behind me?
I touched the ground
while floating away,
I saw sound,
I felt awake.
For Summer Rain Premiere
Here are a trio photos from the premiere of my new pipa work two weeks ago in Beijing. YuYan was amazing!
